This 3-day cruise will be available for Mondays departures only.

A fantastic way to discover the myths of the Amazon, being part of the nature and still have the comfort of a luxury ship. You travel while you sleep and wake up every day in another incredible spot. Excursions are done from the boat and you will be able to fish your own dinner.

You will experience trips with outboard powered canoes in smaller creeks to see life on the flooded plains, rubber trees, lakes with giant water lilies, watch the birds, visit the local inhabitants and walk in the forest, always accompanied by expedition english speaking guides.

Your adventure will follow with night trips to see nocturnal animals, views of the floating docks, market and houses on stilts.
